Feds Help Find Missing Pets

Have you seen these pets?

picture of dogpicture of cat You won't be seeing their pictures on the sides of milk cartons, but you can join the search for these missing pets at the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service's new missing animals page to help locate lost pets at http://www.aphis.usda.gov:80/reac.

The page was designed as a public service by veterinarian Jerry DePoyster.

"People have not really caught on to using the Web for this yet," DePoyster told the Associated Press. "That's one of the ideas behind doing this, to sort of get people keyed into using the Web and also keyed into keeping a picture of the animal."

Eleven missing pets are now listed on the site. People who lose their pets send a description and picture of the animal to DePoyster, who adds their pets to the list.
